    On behalf of UPHRA , we are pleased to announce our annual conference, formally known as the Fall Forum, rebranded as the Spring Summit, is coming in the spring of 2024. This event has become the U.P.'s premier Human Resources professional development event with a variety of information presented for the HR practitioner of any size organization in any field. Plan now to attend--this is an event you can't afford to miss. 

    Up to 5 SHRM/HRCI recertification credits are available with an opening keynote, a closing keynote and three breakout session times with four session options each. Content is based on responses to the survey sent to UPHRA's contact list in the fall of 2023. 'How the heck do I get supervisors to do the right thing?', 'How do we incentivize employee performance?', 'What drives employee engagement?', and 'Employee wellness (financial, social, physical, emotional, etc!)' received the highest percentages of responses. We heard you and are bringing speakers in to address those topics. 

    We also have developed a breakout session track directed at non-HR supervisor/leadership development. Content in this track will focus on servant leadership, strength-based performance, and developing a culture of accountability. We encourage organizations to take the opportunity for leaders to attend.
